Poverty and Hunger Growing in Wichita
According to a research performed by the Brookings Institute in Washington D.C., Wichita is facing a potential poverty crisis, with some neighborhoods seeing increases in poverty rates of over 20%. We’ve also watched as a growing number of families in Sedgwick County have turned to local food banks for assistance. At present, more than 200,000 residents in the area require help putting food on the table.
Working Against Hunger and Poverty
The Rutledge Insurance Agency is now a Regional Ambassador for #AgentsofChange, a national collective of private insurers that help provide assistance to Americans in need. We are unveiling a campaign to assist families in the Wichita area with access to nutritious, healthy food, and we will be working to eradicate poverty by supporting local initiatives aimed at job creation, education, and family wellness.
There is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done to reverse the growing trends of hunger and poverty in Wichita, and we need your help.
We Need You!
It won’t cost you anything to join our team and be part of a positive effort to provide assistance to struggling families in our area. All we need you to do is invite your friends and relatives to visit the Rutledge Insurance Agency so we can talk to them about this cause. We will also provide them with a complimentary insurance appraisal, and when that’s done, we will make a donation IN YOUR NAME to a local family assistance initiative.
